As a frustrated director faces debt and divorce, his elderly father suddenly regains his youth. This moving comedy gradually reveals elements of history and romance. Adapted from a play by Norihiko Tsukuda, the film is studded with Hong Kong stars.

Troubles keep piling up for washed-out movie director Tian Lik Hang. His wife wants a divorce, his film company is bankrupt, and his mom has died. Worse, he must now take care of his eighty-something dementia-ridden father, Yat Hung. And then Dad begins to shed a layer of skin every day, each time making him look ten years younger! With Dad approaching the same age as his son, the two bond at the football stadium where they used to spend their weekends. Lik Hang gets to know a father he had forgotten, one who struggled to make a better life for his family.
